Brendan Shanahan needs to make his next decision very carefully because if he fails to properly discipline Raffi Torres, he could lose the little bit of credibility he has left.

Update: 10:09 PM 

Here is the hit in question.

During the Chicago Blackhawks' game against the Phoenix Coyotes, Raffi Torres dropped Marian Hossa with a hellacious hit. Torres not only jumped and targeted the head of Hossa but also sent him off the ice on a stretcher.

Hossa didn't have the puck and was absolutely clobbered by Torres. There was no penalty called, and fans around the world are absolutely dumbfounded.

Here is how Twitter reacted.

Torres jumped into a hit on Marian Hossa and rocked him right in the jaw, and he dropped to the ice. Hossa did not leave under his own power and was carted off on a stretcher. There was no penalty on the play, but this was a nasty hit that needs to be made an example of.

At this point all fans can do is hope that Marian Hossa is OK because it didn't look good from ice-side.
